( laughter ) how is america going to defend itself after these cuts? i mean, what's left of our budget, anything? >> it's important to note here that our military still has a budget bigger than the next 10 military budgets in the world combined. >> stephen: only 10? ( laughter ) but what if we want to invade 11 countries? ( laughter ) of course we're nowhere near that capacity now, folks be, because the cuts in this budget are explicitly a rejection of the previous "fight two wars at once" doctrine. hagel has evidently forgotte
are in the defense department. the national security agency which has been in the news a lot. the national geospatial intelligence agency who i worked with for a couple of years. they take pictures from satellites. the defense intelligence agency does mostly intelligence matters. reconnaissanceal office which manages satellites. and a lot of people think you launch a satellite and it is just up there. no, you fly a satellite. you determine welhere it will be and then you maintain it. that is what they do. two intelligence agencies focused primarily on the united states. the fbi and the department of homeland security. they're concerned with threats st organizations and they work with state and local governments. view of the treasury government -- department. the drug enforcement agency. their work should be obvious. the energy department which is where my security clearance currently resides which looks after nuclear matters and energy matters. each of the five armed forces as its own intelligence branch. you put all that together and to 16 of them. the problem with the silos. we learned from 9/11 th

defense council found that between 1999 and 2010, a lack of snowfall cost our ski industry a billion dollars. and up to 27,000 jobs. before the end of the century, the number of economically viable ski locations in new hampshire and maine will be cut in half. skiing in new york will be cut by three-quarters. and the report says there will be no ski area in connecticut or massachusetts. well, if you know your geography, you know if that's true of connecticut and massachusetts, there goes rhode island's yagu valley ski slope. the bicameral task force on climate change, which i started with representative henry waxman, asked the national basketball association, major league baseball, the national hockey league, the national football league and the united states olympic committee to tell us what climate change means for their sports. the national hockey league chemicadeputy commissioner wrot, "hockey's relationship with the environment is unique. our sport was born on frozen ponds, where to this day players of all ages and skill levels learn to skate. for this magnificent tradition to co
hearing with the chairman of the joint chiefs, general martin dempsey and secretary of defense, chuck hagel, got under way at about 9:30. two hours ago. we'll take you there live now until the house comes in at noon eastern. >> i presume you are talking about the 2005 base closing. which as you i'm sure know the focus on that and chairman levin knows this very well, was as much a reorganization as anything else. mr. hale, the comptroller, can give you specific numbers. but we are generating considerable savings today. and we will in the out years, from base closings. if i recall it's around $12 billion. is that a year? i think a year on savings, which we can document. we can show you that. the fact is, bottom line, senator, is that we cannot continue to afford to carry infrastructure that we don't need. i wish we could do it all. i wish we could keep every platform we have everywhere, but we can't do it all. it doesn't make sense making money away from infrastructure that we don't need. it's not relevant. it takes money away from what is relevant. our people, modernization, readiness.
the protesters. now the question in washington, how do you respond to vladimir putin? our secretary of defense gave a warning to russia today like sort of cold war style. it is unclear whether putin is listening. a top russianing new agency says the ukrainian president is staying in a kremlin guesthouse and still considers himself the president and plans a news conference tomorrow. he scened from ukraine during protests. ukraine is smith between a pro-east and a pro-west. the future of the ukrainian people is hanging in the balance. and putin ising ignoring calls from the west to stand down. putin is pushing his tough-guy image these days, made famous in these shirtless pictures. he has ordered war games along russia's western border right where it meets ukraine and making sure the world sees him flexing his military muscles. releasing this ridow of fighter jets training. secretary of state john kerry says putin claims the drills have nothing to do with ukraine. secretary kerry says he is asking the russians to let ukrainian make their own doeses. >> i talked to the foreign minister and we tal
is general sinclair's lead defense attorney mr. chef. the prosecutor quit. we did reach out to the pentagon and prosecution and get statements and the pentagon has yet to get back to us for a statement and of course we will have the pentagon's side of the story whenever they do get back to us. tell me your best argument for why the charges should be dismissed? >> well the charges should be dismissed because it's pretty clear the decision-making in the case is being driven by politics and people at the pentagon as opposed to where it should be with the convening authority at fort bragg. this is a case that has always been a remarkably thin case in terms of the evidence. there are thousands and thousands of text messages and personal journals by the person who's accusing general sinclair of sexual assault. it demonstrates the consensual nature of their relationship. on top of that, in early january she perjured herself during a pretrial hearing. in that circumstance, in every experience i've had both as prosecutor and defense lawyer and everyone i've spoking to, the charges that are based sol
of the department of defense. which is the office of research and engineering. that became the defense advanced research project which is the subject of my next book. a shameless plug. yes you. [applause] >> see talked about the russian and was there a reason for this? remapped they couldn't stand the german scientist. and that's a very interesting question. but they sent them back to germany and we had a program that was called operation dragon return. and we scooped up anyone who had been in the soviet union working on the weapons program and use them as intelligent asset area. >> is it true that allen dulles was sort of the front man and he was setting up the cia? >> good question. he was at camp king and he was the head heller soviet intelligence program on the soviet union intelligence program. he became a major player in all of this, sadly. and his story is interwoven into this, but he is at camp king with his team of officers and former intelligence agents and they were all run by the army intelligence and the cia took them over. so then the soviet spies who were talking to them and subj
in crimea. we have now spoken to someone from the ministry of defense. they say let's not put too much weight on this. frankly, every time that the russian troops have encircled military bases and they have now around ten, they have given some kind of an ultimatum. he said this is just another one of those. frankly, these ultimatums have passed and nothing has really happened. so i think it is important not to put too much weight on this deadli deadline. it is not necessarily an official deadline. from what we have seen, they have been very calm. it has been a very low key kind of invasion. ben wedeman our own ben wedeman was just at one of the border post bases. he said that the soldiers there, one commander told him he got his orders to leave his base at the black sea fleet on saturday. he had come up there. the locals were giving him tea and letting him have a place to have showers. so it has all been very amicable. as i said, a pretty low-key invasion. the situation on the ground here is very, very calm. it seems to be the international community and the world markets and everyone
. -- we want to reiterate our concerns to abide by the provisions of the 1994 defense memorandum. we guarantee the sovereignty and integrity of ukraine. we note that the provision calls for the one. -- call for the signatories to consult when there are questions concerning the commitments within the document. this clause is even more relevant now, and indeed represents an opportunity to peacefully resolve the current crisis. we are encouraged by indications that government of ukraine is taking steps to ensure political inclusiveness in the governance of the country. we believe this is a prudent way of addressing one of the underlying causes of the disputes and an early return to peace and stability. the call by the secretary general for cool heads to prevail remains relevant under the circumstance. we urge all concerned to refrain from provocative action that will precipitate now and in the future and unnecessary human suffering. i thank you. >> i thank the representative of nigeria for the statement. i look forward to the representative of the republic of korea. >> thank you, madam
with sand bags, ice bags, all sorts of defenses, and now they are covered in flowers, many, many, many flowers and photographs of those who died. a lot of them by sniper bullets during those disturbances just a week or so ago. kerry was surrounded by an absolute scrum of camera people and security officers and well aware those images would be sent around the world. the substance, of course, of what he said today was that the economic support that the u.s. was prepared to provide for ukraine at a time also when the imf is here, because the economy here is in a terrible state and everyone is aware that the russians can't probably, will tighten the economic screws. we've already seen a hint of that today with the suggestion that gas prices are going to be going up, so a very important gesture by kerry, whose visit here is under very, very close attention, tamron. >> ian williams, thank you very much. now let's get the latest from chuck todd. to pick up on where ian picked off, the economy, economic instability, i'm looking here, the dow is now up 202 points, we're not seeing the rattles,
of the military with deep cuts to the defense budget. the proposal pushes health and human services spending over 1 trillion for the first time ever. what does the budget proposal mean for your wallet? we will break it down at 5:40. the first primaries of the 2014 election season are in the books. the elections in the texas area easily solved abbott and davis get their party's nominations. but things weren't quite as simple for the nation's oldest member of congress. 90-year-old republican ralph paul who is seeking his 18th term did not win 50 percent of the primary vote. which forces him nool a may runoff against former u.s. attorney jay ratliff. son of former governor jeb bush won the primary for texas land commissioner. he's expected to win the january election in november. >>> massive crowds celebrating mardi gras in new orleans. this morning the party is dying down because today is ash wednesday. this is a day where christians mark the beginning of the len ton season. they prefair for easter sunday and jesus' resurrection. on this day ashes are applied to believer's forehead like that. it is
violence. >> translator: if you are talking about self defense of the cry crimean people, we haven't given them orders. there were special measures taking to the hinderland. as our president said, we will do everything we can to present any blood shed. >> as we mentioned, the world's top diplomats are meeting in paris. it was scheduled to discuss syria but u ukraine discussion is to be high. our diplomatic editor looks at how one crisis is affecting the other. >> the ongoing battles in syria are more than a thousand kilometers away from ukraine. the crisis in crimea may have a real impact. the international community has given this man the job of trying to find peace in syria, but talks convened by veteran peacemaker have achieved nothing. getting both sides back around the table and persuading them, and in particular, the syrian government, to negotiate properly requires pressure from the u.s. and russia working together. that the doesn't look like it will happen. just like the peace talks, the deal to remove syria's chemical weapons was done by us secretary of state, john kerry a
obviously that putin has used the same defense, that he's trying to protect russian-speaking minorities that hitler used in trying to protect german speakers, but, you know, beyond that it's really inappropriate. >> let me ask you, david. you spoke yesterday with the former defense secretary, robert gates. i wanted to bring this up. first i wanted to play something peter king said about red lines and criticizing the president. it goes directly to the conversation you had with robert gates. >> if he is going to have this policy, which i think to some extent is too -- is not strong enough, but if he is going to have that policy then he shouldn't be laying out scenarios and laying out red linings. he has to be consistent. >> that was obviously criticizing the president. john mccain using the words if he canless -- feckless, john mccain even more. he urged gop senators to tone down their criticism and try to be supportive of the president rather than madder at the president, that this is a time when you need to do that. what do you -- what do you think is going to happen here? >> well, i ca
views as a criminal defense lawyer. a comprehensive revision of the federal criminal code should focus on five main points. reducing the number of federal crimes, ensuring that the revised code strikes a proper balance between federal and state law enforcement, clearly defining the appropriate levels of mens rea, establishing uniform rules of construction, and revising the overly harsh punishment system. i'll take those in turn. fir, reducing the number of federal offenses. the list of federal crimes has grown from handful in the crimes act of 1790, to thousands today. this has occurred in part because the country has become more complex and also occurs because everytime there's a national crisis the reaction is to enact new federal crimes. the result is a morass of overlapping statutes. the more than two dozen different -- chapter 47. seven different fraud statutes in chapter 63 and i count 19 different obstruction offenses in chapter 73 of title 18. this proliferation of federal offenses has too main practical consequences from my perspective. first of all the sheer number of crimes
need to keep our defenses up. in an unstable world we do need to keep up our defenses, that is right. that is why this country is investing in some very sophisticated military projects for the future. as twotain the spending percent of our gdp on defense. i do feel that many nato countries have or do stood up theirending -- reduced defense spending. we are one of the few countries that maintains the two percent spending on gdp. eightare countries across -- across nativity to reevaluate the defense spending. >> a partnership between ukraine and nato assigned. declaration did complement the charter that was signed. if you -- if possible nato involvement is ruled out, then are the signatures worth the paper they are written on? -ukraine commission has met on the back of those agreements. there will be further nato agreements -- meetings. we are clear in this house. that we are not planning another crimea war. i am not sure what the member is advocating that nato should do, in addition to the diplomatic moves we have made through nato. those agreements with ukraine are important but they
minister on tuesday. it's widely believed the current defense minister will run in the upcoming presidential elections. joining me now is david kirkpatrick. he is the cairo bureau chief of the "new york times." he wrote an in-depth investigative report on the ben gauzy attacks when christopher stevens was killed in september 2012. i'm pleased to have david kirkpatrick back at this table. welcome. >> it's good to be here. >> rose: you have been there and watched the arab spring wherever it is now unfold changing a region. >> yes i i was in egypt in time for the revolution there, i was there when khadafy fell. it's been breathtaking. >> rose: where is egypt today. >> it's very hard to know. as you mentioned, field marshall has likely to become the next president. he's the general who ousted egypt's first democratically elected president mohamed morsi of the muslim brother brotherh. he was embraced as a hero and he was promising stability when he ousted president morsi. right now, i think that promise looks very remote. most of the factors that contributed to the original upris
is a quarter million dollars. cheryl: you are coming out in defense of bitcoin? why would you defend bitcoin when you lost this amount of dollars? >> this isn't a problem with the bitcoin technology or protocol. it is a problem with one individual company, mount gox -- mount gox in japan. was a shady company that was not very trustworthy. they had problems for years and ultimately i got burned because i had fun there. cheryl: they're looking into mount gox to see if there is attribution, but you have a full defense of bit:in general and you say when it comes to regulators, quote, they are focused on amplifying and in cities destruction. this happened in the u.s. the federal reserve, they would have your back, you would get your $300,000 back. at this point you have got nothing so why blame regulators who could have stopped this and could have saved you? for what happened to mount gox but you can't regulate await incompetence and failure. that is what people try to do in the u.s. financial system and we're left with these too big to fail companies that posed systemic risks to the entire syste
that are already lining up behind a clinton presidential bid punched back aggressively in her defense. so let's start with wednesday. hillary clinton was a bit could i r -- coy about her future. >> can you give us some insight in your tbd in your bio will play out? >> well, i'd really like to, but i have no characters left. i will certainly ponder that. >> but what was clear in that speech and in those remarks is clinton has become a full participant in the invisible primary. she made her most extended defense, for instance, of the health care law. >> -- you insure your car. why? because you don't want something bad to happen to it, so insure yourself because, you know, you don't know whether something bad could happen to you. >> but earlier that same day, she did strike a note of caution on health care, saying this, quote, i think we're on the right track in many respects, but i would be the first to say if things aren't working, then we need people of good faith to come together and make evidence-based changes. now, republicans jumped on those comments by hillary clinton, but you should kno
to the gym. she was found not guilty. danny, what do you make of the verdict? >> her entire defense was about who she was, a person on her way to work. that context was critical. the only shot she had here. her entire defense was involuntary intoxification. she accidentally took one of these ambiens. that defense hinged on the context. what kind of person was this? i promise you, if the facts were that she was at an applebys at night and she had an ambien, i don't know they would believe that was involuntary intoxification. instead, she was on the way to the gym. who in the world of drug addicts would take an ambien to go to the gym? >> it is a common sense argument. why would you possibly do that? you said it was all about who she is, no the necessarily the kennedy name. the kennedy name did come up, very prominently introduced by the defense. they explained who she was, all about her family. do you think it played any role in being charged and also in the verdict? >> whenever you have a defendant you are putting on the stand, you will do anything to bring out facts that will show they are a
. it prohibits economic coercion. are the guarantors required to come to your defense? >> unfortunately, in history since 1994, the russian federation tried to suppress us with economic tools. we use the arguments of these agreements. it did not work. as we have today, the european union and united states, the guarantors -- they are ready to provide assistance and financial systems. your first question -- we have had no clear answer for my statement. the troops appeared long before the duma took the positions of today. this action has been prepared long before. it was a well-prepared action. that is why my feeling and position is that the provisions of the charter, the mechanisms and principles of the security council were violated severely. they destroyed -- without any consultations with anybody. they decided to protect -- it was a mistake in the statement of one of the colleagues. the decision was taken not to protect the at make russians but the russian speaking population. if you speak russian, you are to be protected by the russian federation. >> because the deputy harry secretary
ground defense that many others have received. what she was separated from her kids, and she was sent to prison. she finally got some good news last fall when an appeals court ordered a new trial. but now a stunning announcement from her prosecutor. state attorney angela corey says she'll try to put marissa alexander in prison for 60 years. 60 years. that's triple alexander's original sentence. it's essentially a life sentence if she is convicted at this upcoming trial. so marissa alexander fires a warning shot. no one is hurt, and she faces 60 years in prison? while others have shot and killed and are walking free today. where is the justice in that? . >> joining me now is lisa bloom, legal analyst for the "today" show and avo.com, and the author of "suspicion nation: the inside story of the trayvon martin injustice and why we continue to repeat it." thank you for being here, lisa. >> thank you, reverend al. >> lisa, how can angela corey try to put marissa alexander behind bars for 60 years when she was originally sentenced to just 20? >> this is another outrage from angela corey's o
. defense secretary chuck hagel today plans to outline how the military will instead use its $500 billion budget to expand cyber warfare capabilities and develop other high-tech weapons. >> but these cuts very, very controversial now in light of what's happening in ukraine. >>> meanwhile, final, new rules aimed at reducing greenhouse gases coming from cars and trucks. the epa is putting the finishing touches on regulations requiring refineries to cut sulfur levels in gasoline by 2017. this also forces lawmakers to change their vehicles to reduce tailpipe emissions. the epa and some environmental groups call it a win for planet earth, but the oil industry says the new rules will drive up costs for everyone. >>> israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, continues his trip to the u.s. today with a speech before the american/israeli public affairs committee, a day after meeting with president obama at the white house, where the two discussed middle east peace efforts and iran's nuclear program. they showed little sign of finding common ground on those issues. netanyahu is likely to bring t
